I studied fine art at the academy of Kampen and Groningen. In 2005 I finished art school and decided I wanted to make comic-books. In my drawings everyday subjects play an important role. The environments I create and the topics I raise are sober and Dutch. With recognizable motifs I try to create a familiar world. In addition to the subjects that depict the real world, there are dream sequences or alienating events. At this point I play with the certainty of the created structure. This is what it is all about, leaving the viewer curious and confused." - Bart Nijstad  photo adaaklein_zps264ccc17.jpg  photo adadetail5_zps281d5cf4.jpg  photo adadetail3_zps1bd8f624.jpg

Over the next several years, they built up a body or work, received grants from the Canada Council and the Ontario Arts Council, and eventually exhibited at the Olga Korper Gallery in 2007. At the end of 2007 they moved to Zurich where Matt was Artist in Residence and Hallie worked as a science communication advisor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich).
